Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9842059A1] A recoverable article comprises an inner resilient radially elastomeric tubular member (2) that is held in its expanded configuration by an outer relatively rigid shell (6). The interface between the member (2) and the shell (6) comprises a plurality of circumferentially-spaced parallel strips (4) coated onto the member (2). The strips (4) prevent the shell (6) from bonding to the member (2) in those regions. The shell (6) is castellated with its valleys (12) adjacent the edges of the strips (4). The lands (8) of the castellated shell (6) overlying the strips (4) can be peeled back to permit the resilient member (2) to recover towards its original configuration, for example around a power cable splice.
